Uniquely Designed for Ultimate Comfort, Control and Style
CAPE TOWN, South Africa (March 3, 2020) Leatt Corporation, (OTCQB: LEAT), a leading developer and marketer of protective equipment and ancillary products for many forms of sports, announced today that it has launched its first line of MTB shoes. The Leatt Twenty/Twenty line of shoes is designed to combine style, comfort and control for mountain bikers at all levels.
The Twenty/Twenty MTB shoe line has been developed and tested extensively on terrain as varied as the deserts of Moab and the glaciers of the Alps. A key feature of the Leatt shoes is the RideGrip sole, that was developed by Leatt and contains a highly durable rubber compound that resists abrasion and forms the perfect pedal adhesion surface.
“Shoes are one of the key touch points when riding mountain bikes, so there can be no compromise in terms of comfort, control and pedal efficiency,” said CEO Sean Macdonald. “Designed in the Leatt Lab and tested by our professional riders like all of our innovative products, these shoes will help our customers to safely improve their riding skills and increase bike control. In addition to our recent launches of goggles, boots and other exceptional protective gear, our MTB shoe line is yet another product that defines Leatt as a premium ‘Head to Toe brand.’”
A key protective feature of the Leatt shoe line up lies in the shank hidden above the sole of the shoe that controls the flex for different types of riding. The softer shank design (Leatt 2.0) is optimized for trail riding, the mid-stiffness shank design (Leatt 3.0) for rigorous riding conditions and the stiffest shank design (Leatt 4.0 and 5.0) to maximize pedal efficiency for more extreme riding.
The Leatt WaffleGrip sole pattern designed to interlock seamlessly with pedal pins for grip and indexed SPD compatible channels on Clip models complete the sole design for the ultimate grip and bike control.
